|Xenophyophore - Ghosts Don't Exist|
Ghosts Don't Exist: "The only sound source used in this quite minimal piece is an improvisation on e-bowed guitar. It was made as a personal late night or sleep soundtrack, but maybe some other people could enjoy it - for similar or different purposes." "...for me this track is like a simple organism breathing slowly in obscurity, or obscurity/night seen as a living organism, i don't know if it's something 'inside' or 'outside', the kind of feeling you can have while half asleep, when you lose t...

|Dmitriy Krotevich - Codebusters [treetrunk 217] - Dmitriy_Krotevich|
"Codebusters" by Dmitriy Krotevich is a fine example of generative sound art. Each track is actually a machine code running 8000 times per second and generating audio output. After the "RUN" key is pressed, an endlessly evolving noise structure comes to life.

|now to then - Janes scenic drive|
Here is the first of many long-form ambient drones by Janes scenic drive. This is the 68 minute version; an abbreviated, 30 minute version, is also available. "Now to then" is the longest single piece of ambient music I have ever created. But the content is more important than the length, and this drone has an atmosphere best enjoyed at about 1/4 volume.

Another Neglected Hobby is an electronic music project of Mark Cotton. This release, like its predecessor Elements One: Beeswax and Rust, was inspired by revisiting a series of paintings Mark created using beeswax and rust on canvas instead of traditional paints. The sound is a mixture of drone and rhythmic elements, layered patterns and filtered recordings, shifting from simple, repetitive note patterns to tribal drums and pulsing syncopation.
